The righteousness of God by the faith of Jesus Christ, unto all, and upon all that believe
For there is no difference: for all have sinned, and are deprived of the glory of God, And are justified freely by his grace, through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus, Whom God hath set forth to be a reconciliation through faith in his blood to declare his righteousness, by the forgiveness of the sins that are passed. Romans 3: 22-25 (Geneva bible)
A King's ransom has been paid, not only for your Liberty, but your soul. This King's ransom, should you choose to accept it, was purchased by the King Himself. This ransom cannot be bought by you and no labor or good works can attain it, it is a free gift purchased for you by the King, and not only for you, your race, or your religion, but its a free gift to all who will, regardless of your past, receive it. To be justified and declared righteous in Gods eyes you must be forgiven of your sins and reconciled through faith in Christ Jesus of Nazareth, the One who paid this King's ransom, through the shedding of His blood.
How can you receive this King's Ransom as your own? It's as Simple as ABC...
A. Admit that you’re a sinner, if you don't believe that you’re a sinner and that you have sinned against God you simply cannot be saved. Lucifer, the father of lies will tell you that your alright and that your not doing anything wrong but when you lay your head on your pillow at night, You Know it's not alright between you and your maker. Ask God to forgive you of your sins, and turn 180 degrees from your sins and turn to God.
B. Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ with all your heart in faith believing that He was born of a Virgin and lived a perfect sinless life, died for your sins, in 3 days was supernaturally raised from the tomb, and be submerged in water in the name of Jesus as an acknowledgement of Jesus death, burial and resurrection. If your indoctrinated with a works belief system, face up to the fact that your righteousness will never be more than filthy rags before Him. Jesus is perfect, follow Him.
C. Commit your life to Jesus, the big C for Christians is not Cancer but Commitment. There is no ceremony or saying that will replace true Commitment. Don't be conformed to this world but be transformed by the renewing of your mind in Christ Jesus. Wake up in the morning, dedicate your life to Him, and follow Him that day, that is how we will make it through these coming days, weeks, months, and years.
Jesus said that He will be Lord of all or He will not be Lord at all
Everyday is God's day and if you are only giving Him 10% or 1 day out of 7 you are robbing God, it's all or nothing with Jesus. If you have any ulterior motives for your Commitment or if you ask for Forgiveness for any other reason than being truly sincere, seeking to be forgiven by God then you don't have a true repentance therefore your not truly Forgiven.
After all has been said and done, in the final scheme of things, God knows you inside and out. God already knows everything that you’re ever going to do for Him and against Him all the days of your life. If you will truly seek forgiveness God will truly forgive you, no matter who you are, no matter what you've done. True Repentance brings forth True Forgiveness.
Many Christian religions today have preached a defective message of the gospel
which has produced defective converts, which has produced a defective church, which produces more and more defective believers. What is missing is conviction and commitment. The problem with the once saved always saved doctrine is not that one can lose their salvation but rather the need to truly receive it.
Lucifer is smiling down on these denominations as they proclaim to the lost, without any mention of sin, conviction, eternal fire in hell or wrath of God: Just repeat after me this little verse and hey, your saved. No, really you are. It's official, you are now going to heaven, and with no conviction or conversion in their life they continue on with a Saved Certificate from their church or denomination.
To repent means to turn from your sins and turn to Christ
Regardless of what belief system you are following one thing is certain, if you Love Jesus you will follow Him, if you don't you won't. A true Christian needs to have a total commitment to serve God with all his or her Heart. Sold Out for Jesus, Lord of all or not Lord at all. A false conversion or church certificate will not save you.
Jesus knows your heart my friend and when Jesus comes into your heart there is a change in your life. Old things are passed away behold all things are made new. True repentance brings forth true forgiveness and without it the church that you are attending is just a Sunday morning Social Club. Hell is expanding every day from false conversions of a defective gospel through a ceremony, confirmation, church, religion, or doctrine.
They are going through life lost and living in darkness wrapped up in this world with no Love for Jesus except when it is convenient or profitable to do so. Having said their, repeat after me prayer and having been confirmed by their church as Saved they believe that they have their ticket and are expecting Heaven at the end of their journey but.
Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven
but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. `Verily, Verily, I say unto you, He that entereth not by the door into the sheepfold, but climbeth up some other way, the same is a thief and a robber. I am the door: by Me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture. I am the good Shepard: the good Shepherd giveth His life for the sheep. I am the good Shepard, and know my sheep, and am known of mine. Matthew 7:21- John chapter 10 verses 1-9-11-14
Romans chapter 8 says: There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death. And if Christ be in you, the body is dead because of sin; but the Spirit is life because of righteousness. For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.
For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear
but ye have received the Spirit of adoption whereby we cry, Abba, Father. If so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together. For I know that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us. God's Spirit itself bears witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God: And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ.
The Love of God...
